Scope and content

S-1852 consists of records documenting the ICFY’s monitoring of UNPROFOR and the military activities of warring factions in the former Yugoslavia. Included are UNPROFOR-generated records copied to the ICFY as well as ICFY high-level summaries of UNPROFOR reports.

Periodic reports authored by ICFY personnel for the Co-Chairmen include the ICFY daily operational reports, reviewing UNPROFOR and warring faction military activities throughout the former Yugoslavia. There are also UNPROFOR-generated military periodic reports, including: the Force Commander’s daily briefings; daily situation reports prepared by the Force Commander; and military information summaries.

There are also daily reports detailing air-detected and ground-observed violations of the no fly zone in the airspace of Bosnia and Herzegovina investigated by the Monitoring and Close Air Support Coordination Centre (MCCC). Daily reports on activities in the no fly zone also note medical evacuations (MEDEVACS) and casualty evacuations (CASEVACS), as well as operations of NATO aircraft. Records pertaining to air support include: the Force Commander’s concept of employment of air power dating from 1994; release authority requests issued for UNPROFOR military exercises; and code cables sent between Co-Chairman Thorvald Stoltenberg and the Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Kofi Annan about close air support (CAS) and air strikes.

There is also a collection of maps produced by the UNOPROFOR Geographic Branch (G2) in Bosnia and Herzegovina Command headquarters, and G2 personnel stationed at the headquarters of the British Force (BRITFOR) in Split, Croatia. The maps depict: boundaries of United Nations Protected Areas (UNPAs); lines of confrontation; the disposition of warring factions in Bosnia and Herzegovina; and supply routes. The maps also feature summaries of military information about warring faction activities.

S-1852 also contains: the UNPROFOR Force Standard Operating Procedures (SOP); the Force Commander’s operation orders and policy directives; casualty statistics of UNPROFOR personnel; briefs on battalion deployment; memoranda and reports on the deployment and operations of the Rapid Reaction Force; and briefs on demilitarization in Sector North.
